"Dugnad" in Kędzierzyn-Koźle. 

Integration of residents and improvement of neighbourly relations as foundations of local development.


30.04.2024 - Dugnad project finale. Thank you!

30 April marked the official end of the ‘Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle’ project. For more than three years it has changed the face of our city. It has made the inhabitants better acquainted and integrated them. The municipality was the only one in the Opole region to obtain nearly PLN 19 million from the so-called Norwegian funds for the realisation of this large project.

This is the first time Kędzierzyn-Koźle has implemented a project on such a large scale and with such great impact. It focused not only on large investment tasks (adaptation of Dom Kultury ‘Chemik’ to the needs of people with disabilities and adaptation of the building of PSP No. 6 in Stalmacha Street to become the ‘Dugnad’ Cooperation Centre), but above all on so-called soft activities. All groups of residents benefited from the proposed projects, including those with special needs. Integration and good neighbourly relations have become the hallmark of 'Dugnad'. Large-scale consultations were also a good practice. Implementation of tasks was preceded by open meetings with the local community.

The assumed results could not have been achieved without the support and involvement of the project partners: Kędzierzyn-Kozielski Park Przemysłowy Sp. z o.o., the Koziołek Sports Club, the Municipal Public Library, the Municipal Cultural Centre, the Municipal Social Welfare Centre, the Municipal Sports and Recreation Centre and the Europa Iuvenis association.


15.04.2024 - The former primary school is a construction site

The building of the former Primary School No. 6 on Stalmacha Street is being transformed into the "Dugnad" Co-operation Centre. It is one of the largest current investments in Kędzierzyn-Koźle.

The building will be completely re-purposed and adapted for social purposes, with former classrooms being converted into so-called supported housing.


11.04.2024 - From KK to WWA

At the embassy of the Kingdom of Norway, they already know that the idea of 'dugnad' has been successfully implanted in Kędzierzyn-Koźle. The visit to the diplomatic post was one of the points of the study trip to Warsaw. The capital of our country was visited by a group of about 50 volunteers and representatives of the Third Sector.

The programme of the two-day trip also included intensive sightseeing of the city on the Vistula River. Participants looked at the Mermaid, strolled around Castle Square and Krakowskie Przedmieście. A visit to the Royal Castle was also a must. Another unusual attraction was the Copernicus Science Centre and an unusual museum for selfie-taking enthusiasts.

An opportunity for even greater integration for local activists was provided by the Centre for Non-Governmental Organisations and Volunteers operating at the Municipal Social Welfare Centre.


10.04.2024 - Seniors had an active rest with "Dugnad"

"Dugnad" again took our residents on a tour of Poland. This time seniors went on a trip to the Vistula River. Our nestors had the opportunity to take part in cooking workshops and visit the charming corners of this mountain town.

The participants visited, among other places, the Regional Cuisine Museum, where they tried their hand at preparing regional delicacies. Another highlight of the trip was a guided tour of the centre of Wisła. The senior citizens strolled along the promenade and market square, visited the Evangelical Church, the amphitheatre and the Habsburg Palace. At the end of the trip, everyone relaxed in the swimming pool complex, the salt grotto, the sauna area and the graduation tower. The trip was organised by the Municipal Senior Citizens' Centre at the Municipal Social Welfare Centre.


09.04.2024 - A trip full of excitement

Four trips in one. The Community Senior Citizens' Centre together with the NGO and Volunteer Centre took residents on another trip full of excitement. The integrative trip took place as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project.

The programme was extremely rich. Participants visited the adit at the Królowa Luizy mine in Zabrze, strolled through the streets of the charming and historic Nikiszowiec and relaxed among plants and animals from all over the world in the Exotarium in Sosnowiec. The main attraction, however, was flying in the wind tunnel in Katowice. The trip was attended by senior citizens, volunteers and representatives of NGOs from our city.


03.04.2024 - 'Dugnad' will take to the air again

It was such a thrill that it's a shame not to experience it again. More daredevils will be able to try their hand at the wind tunnel in Katowice. Members of NGOs, volunteers and senior citizens will take to the air thanks to the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project.

The Municipal Social Welfare Centre has launched registration for the adventurous trip. The programme also includes a visit to the exotarium in Sosnowiec and a rafting trip down the Queen Louise Adit in Zabrze. In addition, MOPS is providing insurance, entrance tickets, a meal and a pilot. Participation in the event is free of charge, but for organisational reasons, registration is required. These can be obtained by calling 77 483 78 79, ext. 408.

 


27.03.2024 - Grand finale of the "Dugnad" project

 For more than three years it changed the face of our city. It made the inhabitants get to know each other better and integrate. To its credit, the Chemist Community Centre has been adapted to the needs of people with disabilities, and a 'Cooperation Centre' and supported housing for seniors are being created in the former building of PSP No. 6 in Stalmacha Street. All thanks to the 'Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle' project.

 The municipality is currently completing a large project co-financed by the so-called Norwegian funds. Kędzierzyn-Koźle has obtained nearly PLN 19 million for all its activities. Our local government is the only one in the Opole region to be among only 29 cities in Poland to have received money from Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland for tasks related to development and social integration.

 All completed projects were summarised at a conference combined with panel discussions and acknowledgements of project implementers. The meeting was attended by invited representatives from the Ministry of Funds and Regional Policy, the Association of Polish Cities, the authorities of Kędzierzyn-Koźle, councillors of the voivodeship assembly, city councillors, starostes, mayors and heads of befriended local authorities and invited guests. The conference was preceded by a Study Tour, during which flagship investments and one of the many handicraft workshops were presented.

 All the activities implemented as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project can be consulted via a specially prepared publication entitled. "Dugnad Dictionary". The ebook and audiobook are available via: www.slownikdugnad.kedzierzynkozle.pl.

"Dugnad" is once again taking a trip. These will be the last trips financed from the so-called Norwegian funds. Seniors and members of associations, foundations, local action groups and volunteers can take advantage of the invitation. Traditionally, it promises to be a great escapade.

19.03.2024 - Preparations are underway for the final of the "Dugnad"

A conference summarising the implementation of the "Dugnad" project will be organised in Kędzierzyn-Koźle. The event will be attended by representatives of the Ministry of Funds and Regional Policy, the Association of Polish Cities, local government officials and the project's implementers and partners.

The organisation of the event dominated the last meeting of the working group. Details and the exact schedule of the meeting were discussed. The conference being prepared will provide an opportunity to summarise all the activities which have taken place in Kędzierzyn-Koźle over the past three years. The city has obtained nearly PLN 19 million from the so-called 'Norwegian' funds. These funds will be used to create the Dugnad Cooperation Centre in the former building of PSP No. 6, to adapt the Chemik Culture Centre for people with special needs, and to organise dozens of meetings, trips, training sessions, workshops, picnics and sports competitions, all of which have successfully integrated residents.


18.03.2024 - 'Dugnad' has once again pulled away from the ground

It was a departure. And I mean that literally. NGO members and senior citizens on another study visit could not complain of boredom. On just one day, they visited the wind tunnel, the palm house and the former adit.

The free trip was part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project. Behind the extremely attractive programme was the Municipal Social Welfare Centre, which once again positively surprised the participants of the trip.

The highlight of the event was certainly the flight in the wind tunnel, where everyone, defying the forces of gravity, could fly at least a few centimetres above the ground. After the excitement of the experience, participants could relax and admire unique plant specimens in the "Palm House". The final attraction, however, was an underground rafting trip down the "Luisa" adit under the centre of the 170,000-year-old city.


14.04.2023 - An inclusive game at the bowling alley

Dugnad has knocked down all the bowling pins. The lanes in the "Azoty" hall hosted a great bowling tournament for three days entitled. "School Game". The Municipal Sports and Recreation Centre invited pupils from as many as nine primary schools to take part in this integrative competition.

More than 200 young players tried their hand at it. Everyone who grabbed the ball could feel like a winner. All participants received commemorative medals and bags full of attractive gadgets.

Members of the bowling section set up as part of the "Dugnad in Kędzierzyn-Koźle" project also showed off their skills.
